What better way is there to finish up a trip to downtown Los Angeles, than with some BBQ?

Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que

Imagine my delight when, after a tiring evening of Christmas shopping in 2nd street in Long Beach, we walked past Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ.

It’s In The Sauce


I found a great little BBQ joint in West Hills this a couple of weekends ago thanks to a hot tip from my good friend Mr. B-Stizzle. It’s a pretty small little restaurant with a long name; It’s In The Sauce, Texas Style BBQ Sandwich Shop. There is absolutely no seating in or outside of the restaurant, so be prepared to take your meal with you. But, also prepare yourself for some tasty eats.

Grandpa Fred’s BBQ

Grandpa Fred

I had been hearing many things about a little joint out in the West Valley called Grandpa Fred’s BBQ. I got some emails and many comments posted to this blog, so I felt it was my duty to give this place a proper review. A few months ago I had try to stop in and have lunch, I knew the general area where it was located, but I could not find this restaurant. A BBQ restaurant located on Victory Blvd. shouldn’t be difficult to find, right? No luck.

With four locations around Las Vegas he finds it easy to eat there often and loves their pulled pork. So we asked him to show us the way.

Barbecue Los Angeles

Thanks go out to Mr. BBQ Lover, a fellow BBQ enthusiast. He has suggested many barbecue restaurants to include in the BBQ Junkie reviews. Another shout-out to my other readers who have offered their BBQ recommendations as well. Over the summer, I would like to review as many of these establishments as is possible. So, I am taking recommendations on any additional barbecue restaurants in Los Angeles or anywhere else in Southern California.

JR’s Barbeque in Culver City

After doing 7 straight BBQ restaurant reviews in 7 days last week (the 7in7) I began to have cravings for guess what? More BBQ. These cravings exponentially increased after seeing Sylvie’s post on her blog, Soul Fusion Kitchen, about JR’s Barbeque. She has great photos and insight into a restaurant that she frequents. Sylvie had recommended that I give them a try. I only have one thing to say to that… thank you Sylvie.
